Shouldn't this be labeled your favorite and least favorite places in Hills., Pin. and Pasco?

Also not all of those places are cities.

I agree with Mike P. - this is all just your opinion, and many of us would have a different list, although I do agree with some of yours. You need to relabel your thread and put the word 'MY" in front of it.

If you got that info from a news source you need to put in a link. If it is your own opinion.. then you really should state that it is your opinion and I will be happy to change the title...

I agree it should be "IMO", specially since I don't think it is from an article since the spelling error of "Zephyrhills". I'm a foreigner and make spelling errors but I don't think a journalist at a news paper makes spelling errors in city names, although many type errors can occur.
